The speed of today’s processing systems has moved classical data warehousing into the realm of real-time. The result is real-time business intelligence. Business transactions as they occur are fed to a real-time business intelligence system that maintains the current state of the enterprise. The RTBI system not only supports the classic strategic functions of data warehousing for deriving information and knowledge from past enterprise activity, but it also provides real-time tactical support to drive enterprise actions that react immediately to events as they occur. As such, it replaces both the classic data warehouse and the enterprise application integration (EAI) functions. Such event-driven processing is a basic tenet of real-time business intelligence.
The Shadowbase® repertoire of products provides ideal capabilities to integrate disparate operational application information into the RTBI system and to support the functions of real-time business intelligence. The Shadowbase replication engine is a high-speed, bidirectional, heterogeneous data-replication engine that moves data updates from enterprise systems to the RTBI system and back in fractions of a second. It also supports an active/active configuration for the RTBI system to achieve extreme availability.
With real-time business intelligence, an enterprise establishes long-term strategies to optimize its operations while at the same time reacting with intelligence to events as they occur. The Shadowbase suite of products provides the leverage to this technology with proven implementations.
